How do I install and try a SnapGene beta release?
Set Release Channel to Early Access
In SnapGene version 6.2.1 or later, click SnapGene → Preferences (macOS) or Edit → Preferences (Windows or Linux). If necessary, select "General" in the sidebar.
Use the drop-down menu to set the "Release Channel" to "Early Access".
Click the Check Now button to check for any available beta updates.
If you don't see the "Release Channel" option in Preferences then make sure you first update to Snapgene 6.2.1 or later.
Install the Update
If a beta release is available for installation then you will be given the option to install the beta software. Click Install Update to install the beta version.
If you choose to install a SnapGene beta release then please be aware that the software may still have bugs.
Please report any bugs or feedback on the new features in the beta to our support team via the SnapGene Help menu.
